A brand new Cricket World Cup game for iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch is now bundled with the upgrade for the Stick Cricket App on the Apple App Store. The Stick Cricket World Cup Edition game is the perfect way to celebrate the excitement of the Cricket World Cup while playing everyone’s favourite cricket game.

Just eight weeks after launch Stick Cricket’s new App for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch has hit number one in all the major cricketing nations including England, Australia, New Zealand, Pakistan, India, Sri Lanka and South Africa, as well as Jamaica and Botswana. The App also features in the Sunday Times’ 2011 Top 500 Apps in the world.

In customary Stick Sports style, the game is easy to play but notoriously difficult to master. It’s all about shot selection and timing – get either wrong and you will be punished. With subtlety a master batsman can hit every ball for six.

Stick Cricketers can track their run rate and the number of times they reach the boundary in real-time, and the game keeps a running total for the batsman’s Stick Cricket career. Users can add their score to the game’s high score charts, unlock specific achievements and compare their success with other batsmen around the world.

Additional features of the Stick Cricket App include:

Full upgrade
  • Bonus Cricket World Cup Edition game
  • 10 and 20 over All Star Slog modes
  • 14 additional levels of World Domination
  • Challenge any user to a head-to-head via Bluetooth or local WiFi network
Free-to-play game
  • 5-over All Star Slog and three levels in World Domination mode
  • Mimic the on-pitch banter of the Cricket World Cup stars like Australia’s Ricky Ponting and England’s Andrew Strauss by using the App’s Facebook and Twitter integration to sledge fellow players.
  • Play head-to-head with upgraded friends via local WiFi networks or Bluetooth

Stick Sports publisher Paul Collins said: “The new World Cup Edition follows the massive success of the Stick Cricket App for iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch. The App has clean bowled all other sports games this year, building on the massive online success of Stick Sports and the Ashes fever that

gripped young men in England and Australia. The game looks cool, is amazingly addictive and it’s so easy to play that I wouldn’t be surprised to see a few of the Twitter-addicted Cricket World Cup stars playing away on it during their downtime while padded up in the changing rooms.”

The Stick Cricket App is available for free from the App Store on iPhone, iPod touch and iPad, or at www.itunes.com/appstore. The premium upgrade is available for £1.79 through In App Purchase and features the bonus World Cup Edition Game.
